This derivative handbook addresses the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal problems and injuries in the primary care setting. It covers problems involving all areas of the skeleton and related musculature in both children and adults. Since primary care clinicians manage most sports injuries, athletic injuries are discussed in depth. In addition to sprains, strains, and fractures, chapters cover illnesses affecting the musculoskeletal system, various types of arthritis, fibromyalgia, and the complex regional pain syndrome. The pocket-sized book will appeal to a range of family care providers.
